Biography

An earnest, boyishly handsome actor, Robert Hays has often adopted an amusing deadpan expression as well-meaning but clueless romantic leads caught up in farcical situations. A "Marine brat," Hays grew up in Turkey, India and England before graduating from high school in Nebraska. Attending college in San Diego, he caught the theater bug after studying acting for a semester and promptly joined the Actor's Guild at the Old Globe Theater. Hays stayed with the company for five years, performing in plays ranging from "Richard III" to "The Glass Menagerie" to "Say Who You Are," winning the Globe's Atlas award for the latter.
